Saltwater, Freshwater and Pond Glossary

Even though my family's kept freshwater tanks as long as I can remember, I've only been into the saltwater hobby for six months.

Fortunately for me, I work with a team of experts.

Unfortunately for me, their job is to help customers. Which, of course, I find vexing whenever I have a question (I have about three per day, although I try to limit it to one).

So what's a hobbyist to do?

One resource I find useful is our own Education Center. Whenever our customer service peeps get asked the same question over and over, they will post the answer in our Frequently Asked Questions section.

Which is great since I frequently ask frequently asked questions.

Often I find myself stumbling over aquarium lingo in general. That's why I love the Saltwater, Freshwater and Pond Glossary ... it saves me from asking questions within questions. Otherwise it can be frustrating when someone's explaining how to solve a problem and you don't even understand the vocab they're using!

What sites do you frequent for quick answers to common questions?
